Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

I had a company car, 2007 Impala that was wearing the tires unevenly. I went through several sets of tires as a result of this problem. I thought that the tire dealership was not doing a good job however just noticed that there is lawsuit stating there was a problem with the spindles. My father, now owns the vehicle. And want to bring this to the NHTSA attention as well as to be notified of a recall as my father is now driving the vehicle.

The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Impala. The contact stated that the all four tires were worn down to the metal after a short period of time. The tires were replaced. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer who stated that they were unaware of the problem. A local mechanic stated that the wheels were the cause of the tire wear. The contact called the manufacturer who stated that they would look into the problem. Additionally, there was corrosion on the emissions solenoid which she was alerted to when the check engine light illuminated. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who stated that either carbon was stuck in the valve or the solenoid was full of water. The vehicle was repaired. Also, the cable to the battery was corroded. Two mechanics inspected the vehicle and stated that the failure was not caused by normal wear and tear. The vehicle was repaired. The current mileage was approximately 73,000. The failure mileage was approximately 66,000.

This involves a continued rear tire issue with my 2007 Chevy Impala ltz that has not been resolved despite encounters with dealers & national tire alignment specialists 12/06: Purchased car new, came with Goodyear Eagle LS2 radials. 3/08: One tire blew in charlotte, nc. At just tires, they pointed out that both rear tires including the one that blew had significant signs of wear, replaced both with LS2 radials. The problem was chalked it up to alignment issues that could've started from the factory. 11/08: After more incidents of low rear tire pressure, took car into local just tires. Tired of continued issues, I decide to get top of the line tires from them (Goodyear assurance tripletred) for just under $900. 9/09: Tire kept losing pressure, took car into local just tires. Told tires were not only once again out of alignment, but rear tires again needed replacement (in a manner not covered by road hazard plan) for $507 with treads severely worn down. The problem was again chalked up to alignment issues, though they aligned the tires in 11/08. 6/10: Randomly check treads on my top-line tires. Completely fine in front, but worn down considerably on both rear tires. I drive only city streets & had driven less than 12,000 miles since buying 4 new tires. Research uncovers a plethora of rear-end alignment issues on 2007 Chevy Impala, including a specific identified issue: fleetleader.phh.com/recalls/2008/recallsjuly2008.pdf customer satisfaction program #08032 - uneven police car rear tire wear obviously, this extended to commercial Impala & explains what's been happening. When calling pallone Chevrolet, the service rep flatly dismisses the talk of the police recall, saying that the spindle rod parts involved are completely different. (later checking indicates the parts are exactly the same on both the police and commercial vehicles.) IżM told that the only way they can help is to check alignment, as if nothing else could be causing the problem.

I am now buying the 3rd set of rear tires in less than a year. The inside tread wears down to the wires every 13-16,000 miles. The VIN on my car falls within the VIN's listed on GM tsb 8032, however this car is not a police car. GM states that I must be hitting a pothole causing alignment problems. I must be hitting the same pothole at the same mileage all 3 times and it only affects the rear tires. There is extensive anecdotal references to this problem on numerous car complaint websites, including NHTSA. Someone is going to get seriously hurt if GM is allowed to ignore this problem. GM's only solution is to sell me alignments and tires since it is "my fault" and even though the problem is identical to the issue noted by GM in tsb 8032, it can't possibly be related since the other identical problem only happens on police and government cars to which GM sells a lot of cars. The everyday individual does not have the complaining power of a large bulk purchaser.

All 4 wheels are out of alignment causing excessive wear on the inside of all 4 tires. I bought the vehicle 2 years ago and it had only 14000 miles. I believe it was a rental vehicle. I now have to replace all 4 tires and get a 4 wheel alignment done. I believe the problem was caused by the original manufacturer (poor quality control). The dealer said it was caused by the brand of tire on the vehicle which is nonsense.

The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Impala. The contact noticed that the rear wheels had excessive tread wear. He took the vehicle to the dealer on numerous occasions and they replaced three rear sets of tires and performed three alignments. He called the manufacturer in reference to tsb numbers 10026504 and 10026484 (wheels) and was informed that they would only replace the component on the police and state vehicles. The tire information was unknown. The failure mileage was 23,000 and current mileage was 26,000.

When it rains the front wheel wells are extremely loud. It occurred everytime it rains once the tires were worn down. I went back to the purchase place and had their mechanics look at it and then I took it to a different mechanic neither of which found anything. I had to replace the front tires after 6 months of owning the vehicle and the rear tires 3 months later.
